Description

A lovely ebonised 18th century style quarter chiming bracket clock by Peerless c1900
This quarter chiming clock playing a Westminster tune on four coiled gongs and striking the hour on a further gong. The ebonised case is in a most lovely condition having a full length fretwork panel to the sides, cast brass caryatids and a brass handle to the bell top.
The case has received a careful clean to remove all the years of dust, grime and soot to reveal its original finish. The silvered dial with silent/strike subsidiary dial has been sympathetically restored to enhance the overall appearance and functionality.
The good quality three-train movement has been fully overhauled and polished by me personally and comes with a full three years guarantee for your piece of mind.
Peerless was a trademark used by Matthias Bäuerle GmbH of St. Georgen, Germany.
As the name suggests, "Peerless" was only used on their highest grade stock movements.
Like some French "Clock Makers", M. Bäuerle was more a movements supplier than a maker of complete clocks. They sent movements to case makers in Germany (of course), as well as to the US and Great Britain.
So...as with many French Clocks, Peerless Clocks can be very unique in that they do not conform to well known catalogued models of the large clock manufacturing companies.
With over twenty years experience in restoring and conserving clocks and working on some of the finest and complicated clocks for a select group of the best antique clock dealers in the country, We are proud to say that we are now the exclusive restoration company for Steam Mill Clocks.
As well as this, Overton Clocks has now decided to offer our customers the opportunity to purchase fine antique clocks that have been personally selected for their unique or special features. Each clock has been expertly restored to the highest of standards by myself. Overton clocks ensures peace of mind in your investment, by personally offering three years warranty on all of our timepieces.
I am a master clockmaker, a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers and a member of the British watch and clockmakers guild. Overton Clocks is a traditional clock shop based in the heart of Chesterfield on two floors hosting a showroom and in-house fully equipped workshop.
